BART: Countdown to San Francisco


Published February 15, 1974


Description: Bill Wattenburg describes problems he associates with the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system and concludes that the blame should be placed entirely on the BART management team. He provides examples intended to highlight the incompetence of the management group and suggests that many problems have not been resolved because the BART management and board are reluctant to admit their errors. He emphasizes that delays in completing the BART system--despite being attributed to mechanical problems--were ultimately caused by irresponsible management. In 1974 Bill H. Wattenburg was an electrical engineer, inventor, and radio personality.
